MAT Summary Evaluation

At the end of the 2021/22 academic year, The Howard Academy Trust was selected by Ofsted to have a Multi Academy Trust Summary Evaluation. This took place for three days in July 2022. The process conducted was in depth and focused on the support and impact that The Howard Academy Trust has on its member academies.

Pupils are currently receiving a good education in all schools that have been inspected since joining the Trust

MAT Summary Evaluations were introduced by Ofsted in 2019. Since then, there have been very few conducted due to the inspection backlog caused by COVID. The evaluation of THAT was the only evaluation conducted in the Southeast this year and the 9th conducted by Ofsted overall nationally.

Receiving this Summary Evaluation at the end of the last academic year has provided THAT with external validation that we are a “Strong Trust” and that we provide support and challenge to our academies as appropriate.

Ofsted Inspections

We are proud that every academy inspected since joining our Trust has remained as a Good school. A full record of our school's journeys since joining the Trust can be seen below.
